Tohatsu 90 tldi

I have a 2008 tohatsu 90 tldi. When I try to put the engine fully down on the trim for the first time after a couple of days of not using the engine it takes about 8 -10 attempts to lower the second ram after it has gone down it goes up and down as many times as I want with no problems. There is no signs of hydraulic leaks any ideas would be appreciated
David

Sounds like air in the system. Check oil levels.

Also check the manual release valve is tight

If it is low fluid - Tohatsu recommend Mobil ATF 220.
